A Few of Our Completed Projects
St Georges School Reno
Renovation and Upgrade work at the Junior School Campus, St. George’s School in Vancouver BC.
UBC Hospital Nurse Call
The replacement of the Nurse Call System at the UBC Koerner Pavilion had a stringent & rigorous schedule to meet. The shutdown of the OR rooms was during the Christmas holidays at this time the old nurse call system had to be removed and replaced with the new Rauland Responder 5 System. The strategic coordination of two crews working 24 hours a day in conjunction with the nurse call sub trade was critical to the success of this project. Having the OR operational by Jan 1, 2016 was crucial for the hospital and this was achieved.
The newly designed Indian Bistro was taken on by a dedicated project manager that dealt with a unique overseas lighting package and a detailed seismic engineering masterpiece. With attention to detail and working closely with the design team this project was completed seamlessly right down to every little lighting detail. We at Mott can cook up any project.
DP World Server Room
DP World Vancouver required a major upgrade to the server room inside their CSSF building in order for it to take over from their main server room which will be demolished as part of a multimillion-dollar expansion project. In order to facilitate this, a brand new server room needed to be built. Mott Electric GP was the successful proponent, and proceeded as the General Contractor for this critical project. The scope included demo to an existing storage space within the building and installation of structural supports beneath the Q-deck to support a new RTU on the roof above the server room, specifically to cool this room. Also to support a chiller unit on the roof above the server room that would work as part of the system of rear cooler doors on the server racks. A fully secure airtight server room, along with an IT room and file storage room was framed in with security mesh. Integration of existing security and fire alarm systems, a raised floor, custom structural supports for the cabinets and UPS system within the server room, typical server room style grounding and blending of the entrance to the is room with the existing building was all part of the project. Multiple trades were coordinated to a very tight schedule in order to meet the short timeline required by the customer and Mott Electric was able to do this without any increase in cost to the customer. This was done inside an office area, on a site that runs 24/7 with very minimal impact on the day to day functioning of this office.
Deltaport STS Crane Install
GTC Deltaport is a port facility located on the mainland coastline of the Strait of Georgia in Delta. Mott Electric has complete many projects at Deltaport over the years. Most recently we worked on the infrastructure for two new RMG cranes from China. Phase 1 of the STS Crane Install Project was the supply of two new feeder cables, as well as fibre cable to supply power and control for the two new cranes. Phase 2 of the project was to connect the two new feeders and fibre cables and to commission the cranes. The logistics of this project were difficult due to the location of the cable runs. GCT Deltaport is the busiest port in Canada. It handles the larges transpacific container vessels, so coordination with the Port’s shipping/production schedule was critical for the successful completion of the cable pulls.
UBC Quantum Matter Institute
The Quantum Matter Institute (QMI) is a 4820 square meter building addition to the Brimacombe Building for research laboratories and offices. UBC QMI was a very challenging project from an electrical perspective. With an extensive distribution system (90 electrical panelboards), very limited space due to the mechanical and HVAC systems, the all surface conduit requirement was very complicated. Our exceptionally talented and creative crew managed to overcome all obstacles with dedicated planning, to achieve a very successful installation.
Sauder School of Business
Complete renovation of existing Sauder School of Business, located in Vancouver on UBC’s Point Grey campus. This modernization of the school created a high tech, bright new environment, including many common areas, lecture halls and program specific student lounges, all with the spirit of collaboration and creativity in mind.
Queens Park Care Centre
Sequenced electrical infrastructure upgrade including civil and communication work in an operational healthcare facility. 12.5KV, 600V and 120/208V Sequencing was key to the successful upgrade of the distribution system – ensuring minimal disruption to all vital loads.
Port Mann Water Tunnel
Port Mann water main infrastructure, 80-meter deep shaft on either side of the Fraser River. Assemble and launch a 6Bar EPB Tunnel Boring Machine. The tunnel is located under the Fraser River. Water main pipe installs and mobilize underground welding units for one kilometer of pipe weld. Water chamber Construction and SCADA system interface with Metro Vancouver.
Peace Arch Hospital
Supply installation & commissioning of the new vital and delayed vital distribution system including a new generator building with 2 – 1000 kilowatt generators, closed transition controls and switchgear as well as upgrades and expansion of existing non-essential distribution system. Reconfiguration of existing hospital loads to allow essential power switching and load shedding capability. Related lighting, power fire alarm, security and tel-data systems.
Douglas College Renovation
Complete renovation including demolition down to concrete of lecture theatre, classrooms, washrooms, stairs, and parkade. New interactive classrooms, offices, washrooms and a metalworking shop took shape in the old spaces. With the help of our sub-trade, Mott Electric managed the very large Audio Video installation for the project.
The Capilano Generator Installation project was one of the final pieces of the Metro Vancouver twin tunnel project which pumps raw water from Capilano reservoir up to the Seymour Filtration plant and then sends treated water back down to Capilano for distribution. A great deal of head pressure develops on the way back down to Capilano and the turbine generator is harnessing this as energy to supply some of the power requirements for the pump station. Mott Electric acting as the prime contractor oversaw the modification of the Energy Recovery Facility and the installation of the turbine generator, penstock and associated switchgear and instrumentation.

Mott Electric is the electrical contractor for one of the most watched and studied urban development projects in the world, Vancouver House. It is the fourth tallest building in Vancouver which includes a ten-story podium that widens into the 515-foot residential tower. There are two six-story triangular-shaped buildings, 95 rental units and 80,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
An iconic, welcoming gateway to the city, Vancouver House is situated on the corner of Howe Street and Beach Avenue at the entrance of downtown Vancouver. The 53 story, 650,000 sq. ft., mixed-use development consists of a blend of retail, office, residential, rental and childcare facility space with a large communal use area for the public to enjoy. The 488 unit twisting tower starts off within a limited triangular footprint; as it ascends, it gently cantilevers. The design allows for the tower to reclaim efficiency as it twists from the triangular shape into the optimum rectangular shape, increasing its floor space for living at it's top. This unique design created challenges for the Electrical Installation and Mott Electric was integral in finding solutions to these challenges. Vancouver House’s 10 story podium will be a mixed-use complex and will consist of retail and market rental units. Adjacent to the residential tower and podium, there are two six-story retail and office buildings, injecting the unused spaces between the Granville Street Bridge ramps with 80,000 SF of new retail space with 600 parking spaces and 723 bike stalls. The project aims to revive the area under the bridge with a public use component and plans for an outdoor gallery installation.
